The need to select and properly manage chemicals — including raw materials and intermediates, process aids, heat-transfer fluids, solvents, lubricants, catalysts and more — is ubiquitous throughout the chemical process industries. The diverse compendium of articles in volume one of this two volume guidebook covers a variety of relevant topics related to the selection and storage of acids, solvents, hydrogen, caustics and other process chemicals.
This volume features several articles related to the design, sizing, operation and maintenance of storage tanks and engineering considerations related to the dispensing of chemicals from storage vessels and the injection of chemicals into process operations.
Focus is found on heat transfer fluids, covering a range of issues from selecting the best fluid for the operation to selecting the best material of construction with fluid-compatibility issues in mind, to monitoring and managing corrosion.
This guidebook also offers several articles related to “green chemistry” efforts that aim for safer and more environmentally suitable alternatives to traditional chemical-based production routes.
These practical, how-to articles were originally published in Chemical Engineering and include hard-to-find articles dating back to 2001.
Delivered in a PDF, 176 pages.
